Unlike Bronson, Statham has skills beyond the action realm. The Bank Job, is proof of that concept. This is not beyond that realm.
There are no real jump scares or even surprises that land, but it’s good enough for a person who doesn’t expect much out of a rental.
…unfortunately Dushku missed her Ripley opportunity.
Walk through the past, when Frankenstien scared kids like my dad at age 5.
It’s not every film that allows Diesel to live out his dream of playing Gandalf at the Bridge at Khazad-dûm.
Malignant is a film where director, James Wan, takes a step back from the big budget and tries to reconnect with the genre of films that pushed him into the big budget stratosphere.
If you like Lange, you will more than likely appreciate some elements of the film. It’s understandable that he’d go through another round of killing for the chance to spout a not-quite Shakespearian sonnet towards the climax.
There are no performances that will resonate, as the constantly shifting variables give everyone a form of schizophrenia to the point of mild annoyance.
There is entirely too much flashing, and not enough here for which to back.
Wahlberg’s good a pumping out product. Sometimes we get The Italian Job, other times we get Contraband. This is closer to the latter.
The older he gets, the more it feels like he gave up trying long ago. If this slate of films is considered art of any kind, then I don’t know crap about film. I only know these films qualify as crap.

The 7th directorial effort by George Clooney is a beautiful, boring, and predictable story that skips the exciting parts, instead focusing on dread, misery and fading hope in the light of humanity. It is the type of film designed to be called brave, but is more an exercise of muscles that are best left unflexed.
The film would be better if there were more characters like the dog The Beast. At least that character knows when to stay quiet and when to sneak up behind an idiot savage and push him off of a high place.
